    I'm really anxious to try the new lines of Fender basses. The Musican's Friend website says that they are expected to be "released" on October 1. Is anyone planning on getting one or has anyone heard anything official regarding when they will be available for sale?

    ok what fenders are you talking about. I know they come out with new strats every couple years advertising that thay are brand new!!, but they are pretty insignificant changes. Are these completely different basses or what. I am kinda jonsing for a P in that new light blue color they have. Well a link to the new fenders would be much appreciated, thanks.

    The Victor Bailey one looks nice. I can take or leave the rest.

    Disappointed that Fender didn't attempt a 24-fret, 6-string Roscoe Beck or a 5-string Urge II. Either of those would have induced severe GAS.

    They look pretty much the same as the old fenders, which isn't a bad thing. The colors are nice though and I like the gold tuners.

    Fender has to move with the times and compete with all the bass makers around - less bright coloured finishes and more nice wood tops from now on.

    No GAS...sorry. They look nice, but no real GAS arises from them...

    I checked out a Zone bass a couple of days ago. Couldn't see where it was worth $500.

    Ok, now Fender finally realised you don't have to hide wood under paint.
    But I don't feel any symptoms of G.A.S. yet.
